What this is:
The stones are generally smooth and round in shape. Basalt stone is used for warm procedures and marble stone for cold procedures. Massaging with them helps relieve chronic or acute stress, which in turn improves the immune system and mood. The hot-cold cycle helps relieve muscle tension and tone muscles, improves digestion and blood circulation, as well as activates the lymphatic system drainage. The procedure offers a good meditative time.
Such a procedure with cold and warm stones were also done in ancient Greece.
